Evening all, Arriving home today from work and the questions is still nagging away at me: why couldn't some of my pupils not complete the reading assessment today. An example of one of the questions: Tengo los ojos verdes. Box A = blue eyes Box B = green eyes Box C = brown eyes These were followed by extremely short paragraphs which questions like: What ages is her sister? Some of the pupils plainly said: "I don't get it". They had access to a dictionary and those who were severely struggling were given access to their printed vocab lists on the topic. Does anyone else experience this level of just utter disregard for the subject? Can it be that despite weeks and weeks of practice through all four skills that there will be those who just won't do it? Feeling utterly deflated by it and just don't know whether it is unreasonable for me to expect someone to be able to have answered such questions. When I asked what I could do to help I was met with shrugs at which point I just walked away. Feeling horrible and frustrated.
